By far, experience of a smooth copter ride in a R-22 is best described as OUTSTANDING. I recommend that an appointment be made before your excursion to this beautiful state. Worth a child's college fund, put 'em UP! Sky High

I loved this helicopter ride. It was a great experience. I got to go to the top of the mountain and saw amazing scenery. The tour was a little short for the money. It's not a cheap tour.

Once in a lifetime experience with great views. Really liked that we were able to interact with the dogs. Wish we would have been able to sled for longer than 15-20 minutes.

Hi Sebastian! You have an opportunity to sit down on the sled or stand on the back runners. Both are great experiences. You do have a professional musher with you at all times to be responsible for the dog team.
